Default Prayers Needed

Please say a prayer tonight for my BFF who was just diagnosed with stage1 colon cancer.
This is one of the two girls I cruise with. Her surgery will be this Friday and they will know for sure itís at a stage 1 and has not spread. I just canít believe it. She and I lost our dear friend Joy seven years ago to the same disease.

She is now on my prayer list, and so are you. This has to be a hard time for you. Praying for good results on Friday.

Default Prayers Needed

In April, I lost an old friend to colon cancer. I hope new things are being discovered that will save your friend.

Prayers go out to you, your BFF and their family members....With sadness, I recently lost both parents and a sister to cancer of various forms....I often ask myself and God, "why do you take the good people that you love, so quickly ?"

I'm wishing her the best and sending out the most positive thoughts. It is scary but it can be beaten. 20 years ago I went through it and though it was not a fun two years I'm still here.

All the best to your BFF

My thoughts are with you and your BFF. It seems like there is an epidemic of this horrible disease. In July 2009 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer that had metastasized and thought I'd never cruise again. Since then we've cruised twice and have one booked for Jan 2012. It's amazing what can be done nowadays so hopefully you and your friend will be on the high seas very soon.
